Meet Ilise Benun: The Marketing-Mentor for Design Entrepreneurs


At the HOW Design Live conference in Atlanta last year, Ilise Benun circulated to various presentations, contributed to panel discussions as a guest speaker, hosted the Designer Roundtable and answered questions on marketing for designers. Her expert guidance motivates aspiring creative entrepreneurs to launch their own freelance design business. (Check out the 2017 HOW Design Line up here.)

Benun squeezed some time in her busy schedule at the design conference to talk with me about her HOW Design University courses and why she is an educator. As an educator, her goal is to help designers focus their creative business in a way that maximizes their revenue. She currently teaches two courses at HOW Design University: How to Earn More in Your Creative Business and How to Start Your Own Freelance Business (both of which are part of the Certificate in Creative Business Entrepreneurship program.) Benun also owns her own business, Marketing-Mentor, where she provides her clients with sage guidance on honing their design business. She is also the author of several marketing books.
